the project


a collaboration between
Ashley Perry & Siying Zhou

      For Hyphenated Projects, Ashley Perry and Siying Zhou are developing a new collaborative research project. This project will examine their understanding of economical models through their lived experiences. Drawing on their childhood, Perry and Zhou will unpack how different economic systems can become embedded through education and social experiences and eventually shape their particular artistic values. They hope to understand how the structures can be understood by drawing from our key memories, and some of the theories people have observed of these structures. Perry and Zhou will undertake several conversations based on themes, such as the value of artists, money/currency, education of economy and environment/social and political pressure, and karaoke activity to build an understanding on the relationship between art and economy. A playful artwork will be produced as an outcome of this project.
